Organization Challenge

Well my organization challenge is not starting out the best.  I made my list but as usual life has gotten in the way of my planning.  Guess thats why I don't plan that much, lol.  Anyhow I'm not going to dwell on that I"m moving forward.  I was going to start in my bedroom but the office demanded attention.  We were having major problems with our phone line and needed a technician to come work on the line.  Well I couldn't have him come out and look at the tangled mess that was border line health hazard.  Like always I forgot take a true before picture but here is a sample of the mess I had

So in an attempt to corral all those cords I took a shoe box and covered it with some contact shelf paper I had laying around. 

This is the final product, not perfect but it hopefully will keep all the dust, dirt and unknown objects from getting tangled. 

Please excuse my very worn and outdated vinyl floor that needs to be replaced.

While I was on a roll I also covered a bottom of a cereal box to add to the front of my silver ware drawer.  I was tired of things slipping under the drawer organizer and not being able to shut the drawer. 

Well happy organizing, let me know if you have taken on the challenge too.

Praise God for YOU!!!

New Year, New start

Its a new year and a new start for this blog.  I am going to finally make those changes I was talking about before way back in July.  So if things look different over the next few weeks its just all in the process of working out what looks the best and is going to work the best for me.  I have been learning so many things from very generous people all over blogland.  I am so grateful so many of you are willing to share what you have learned with all of us. 

Some upcoming posts...

As many of you do every year as the new year approaches.  We make a list of things we may want to change in our lives, projects we want to accomplish, weight we want to lose, people we want to spend more time with, and of course after the money we want to save.  The next few posts are going to be exactly about that.  I am redesigning my studio, trying to make it more efficient for all of the different projects I do.  So I will be sharing with you some of the many creative spaces that inspired me throughout the design process.  As well I have commited to the challenge of organizing project per week, every week this year.  Laura @ Organizing Junkie is having a challenge where you commit to organizing one part of your home/life per week every week of the year.  I started on my list have you? 

I'm very excited about this year of blogging.  I think I have finally found my direction. 

Praise God for YOU!!!
